“The Power of Words.” Technology has impacted how we choose and use our words. Social media has transformed local matters into national and international ones. And that ability can tempt people to eschew civil discourse for bombastic language that will go viral. But the sheer volume of words being shared can dampen the impact of any given statement. In addition, language amplified by technology has helped to erode the value of expertise and vetting. These are serious concerns for law, the academy, and society.
“Access or Control” Keynote speakers include Michael Furlough, Executive Director of Hathi Trust; Clifford Lynch, Executive Director at the Coalition for Networked Information; and Prof. Marcia Langton, Foundation Chair of Australia Indigenous Studies, University of Melbourne.
The aim of the course is to introduce the structure of the legal system in the UK and use of key legal information sources. The course will run online, over two mornings, and cover theory of the English legal system, legislation and case law and practical legal research experience.
The focus is on the law of England and Wales, but some consideration is given to the devolved nations.
“Resetting with Resilience & Technology.” Building on what we have learned over the last year while dealing with uncertainty, this conference shares new strategies, practices, knowledge, and techniques as well as the new tools that help us succeed in trying times and those that we definitely need to replace. Computers in Libraries also includes WebSearch University’s Searchers Academy.
